Report: 'Quality' 28-year-old agrees Chelsea transfer, wants £250,000-a-week salary
Chelsea will complete the signing of Inter striker Romelu Lukaku this summer, if they agree to pay the Serie A champions their £100 million valuation.
According to The Telegraph, the Belgian talisman will agree to a Stamford Bridge return and will demand a salary of £250,000-a-week.
Lukaku made 15 appearances for the Blues earlier in his career. He left as a youngster and failed to find the net for Chelsea.
Since his departure, he has grown with each season and is now one of European football’s most feared marksmen.
Last season he scored 30 goals and claimed 10 assists as Inter claimed their first Serie A title for many years.
Now, he’s a wanted man and clearly, Lukaku feels as though he has unfinished business at Stamford Bridge.
Thomas Tuchel has enjoyed a fairytale start to life at Chelsea. He guided the team to Champions League glory in May and will now target Premier League success.
In order to achieve those lofty ambitions, he’ll need a genuinely world-class talisman. Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham don’t quite meet such a title, whilst Olivier Giroud has been allowed to leave.
Lukaku could be game-changing addition for Chelsea
The Blues landing the 98-cap star would make the title challengers stand up and take notice.
Arter Harry Kane and Robert Lewandowski, Lukaku has to be in the discussion as to who is the world’s best striker.
Last season he struck up a wonderful partnership with Lautaro Martinez and Lukaku can play in a two or as a lone striker.
He currently earns £200,000-a-week and would demand a wage rise at Stamford Bridge.
Once he settles and starts firing though, he could be worth every single penny and ultimately he lead the club to Premier League glory once again.
